This CJ7 Laredo is mostly original and one of the most popular color combinations ever produced by AMC.  We love the fact this Jeep spent its life in the southwest, which is why no rust is present.  Additionally, the Howell EFI kit is a huge plus because it not only improves performance and reliability, but it'll pass smog in all 50 states!  Values of these CJs continue to climb year after year and the survivors, such as this example, are seeing unprecedented  returns on investment.  Of the 379,000 CJ7s produced between 1976-1986, very few were triple black Laredos with a fraction still surviving today.


Collectors refers to this specific CJ7 as a "triple black Laredo," meaning it was delivered new from AMC with P1 Classic Black exterior paint, black Laredo interior, and black hard top.  This is one of the most sought-after color combinations by AMC collectors and enthusiasts.  The proven 258 inline 6-cylinder motor provides plenty of torque and is mated to a 5-speed manual shift transmission.  Power is distributed via a dual range Dana 300 transfer case.   - All original paint and decals except for the hood. - Rot free inside and out - Factory Laredo trim package (included a chrome grill overlay, instrument cluster overlay, rocker panels, leather-wrapped steering wheel and grab bar, and vinyl purse stripe high-back seats) - Sold new in Southern California and owned by the same family since new until the Seller's acquisition in 2022 - Howell 50-state smog compliant Throttle Body Injection (TBI) electronic fuel injection system - Original seats in excellent condition - New carpet kit installed in 2019 - Desirable serpentine belt engine (offered by AMC for CA vehicles starting in 1982 due to strict CA emission protocols) - Passed CA emissions inspection in March 2022 (per CarFax report)

Vehicle History

This vehicle was sold new in Southern California in 1984. Sadly, the original owner passed away in 1986 and the Jeep was inherited by his brother until being sold to the Seller in early 2022. This CJ7 has just under 82,000 documented miles and has a clean CarFax history report (attached). The Seller states the previous owner dropped a can of spray paint from a shelf onto the hood of the Jeep approximately 20 years ago, which resulted in a small dent and paint chip. At that time, the dent was pulled and the hood was repaint; which the Seller states is a perfect color match. While in the Seller’s possession, he added new Laredo hood stripes as they were never added after the hood was painted.
